Stump grinding is a service offered by some tree contractors. A common misconception among property owners is that stump grinding is exactly the same as stump removal. They are two completely different processes. Some tree companies even don’t have stump grinding service available because they lack the necessary equipment. So what is stump grinding? When do you need it?
The process of stump grinding involves literally grinding down tree stumps into tiny pieces. Especially for larger stumps left behind after a tree has been cut down, grinding them is more ideal compared to just removing them. This makes the actual stump removal process easier. It also simplifies disposal of large tree stumps because the pieces can easily be thrown away or buried underground.
You need a stump grinder for this kind of process. A stump grinder is a power tool that can either stand on its own or can be attached to another machine like backhoes or tractors. Through rotating cutting discs or sharp teeth, wood stumps are ground to smaller wood chips. This can completely eliminate the possibility of another tree growth from the stump and as mentioned, removing the stump as a whole becomes easier.
It is important to note that stump grinding must be done by skilled and licensed professionals. As mentioned, not all tree companies offer this service because of lack of equipment. So if you intend to get stump grinding services, ask your local contractor first if they offer such service. In the event that you can find a company that rents out stump grinding tools, it is highly recommended for you not to do it on your own. Again, it is best to call a licensed tree professional to help you out.
